The older I get the more I realize how important it is to be yourself. It’s kind of like “Duh” but if you listen to the radio or look on social media you’ll see what I mean. Everyone is trying to sound and look the same in hopes of gaining attention, success, and money. I get it. Sometimes being different is harder. I was literally standing in my mirror last week struggling with the decision to be myself or do what I see my peers doing. I was preparing for my very first boot camp. I know that I may have been dramatic. I may have called my friends once or twice in a panic because it was so important to me. My fitness business is like my little baby. I care about it so much and that’s one reason why I was a little nervous to be myself. I’m not the muscular person with the whistle doing pull ups with their pinky or the cheerleader shouting out cheers of encouragement every 5 seconds. I am me. I have been nicknamed “Killing Me Softly” by a couple of my clients. I am motivating but I know when to shut up. I am quiet and effective and I’ve been this way my whole life. I ended up deciding that I was going to do my boot camp my way and they were either going to love it or hate it. They loved it! I loved it! I had so much fun and felt silly for even worrying about how it would turn out. I focused on abs & arms during the boot camp. We worked our behinds off but were laughing and smiling the whole time. The energy was super positive and amazing. Everyone told me how much they enjoyed themselves and that they wanted more! I am forever grateful and encouraged. The lesson learned is to be yourself and don’t worry about anything else. I know that your mama told you this when you were 5 years old but I’m going to tell you again. “Be Yourself!”
A special THANK YOU to everyone that gave donations in support of my first boot camp. Your support and love means everything to me.
